It's tournament time!
I know, you've been regretting all year that you didn't get a chance to enter the the 2008 NCAA Bracket Econbrowser Challenge. Well guess what? Here it is March of 2009 and you have a brand new chance!
Y'all were way too good last year, so this year I'm not giving away any hints. You're on your own to figure out which college basketball team is going to win this thing!
To enter, just surf over to the Econbrowser group at ESPN, do some minor registering to create a free ESPN account if you haven't used that site before, and fill in your bracket for the teams you expect to win each game of the men's NCAA college basketball tournament. Or enter multiple entries if you care to follow the Nobel-prize winning advice of James Tobin-- "don't put all your eggs in one basket". Just make sure you complete your entry before Thursday, or else you'll be regretting you missed your chance again for another whole year.

No hints? Can you atleast post the Team Rankings percentage chart like you did last year. I need to win my office pool again. Please!

Michael: They seem to be charging actual money for those probabilities this year.

Sounds Fun! I just wish I knew anything about basketball. Any sort of baseball challenges coming up?
